Gattung: Agave L.
Familie: Agavaceae
Arten: über 200

Die neben den Kakteen wohl die bekannteste Sukkulentengattung. Inzwischen sind Agaven weltweit in subtropischen und tropischen Gegenden verbreitet. Sie blühen nur einmal, danach stirbt die Mutterpflanze ab, meist nicht ohne Kindel auszubilden. Die Blüte erscheint bei den großen Arten erst nach bis zu 40 Jahren, bei den kleineren Arten auch schon nach 5 Jahren.
